    Hi Hariram

    We have a great article on saltwater fly fishing written by Sean Mills. Follow the link below

    http://www.flytalk.co.za/readArticle.php?p_id=21

    It covers species, technique's and venues. I live in the Somerset West area and fish Blakes beach quite often. You can catch Leeries, Elf and the odd shark if you have the nerves Read this thread. All took place on Blakes beach.

    http://www.flytalk.co.za/forum/showt...ighlight=shark

    We can hook up over that time, then i can take you to Blakes if you like. PM me your phone number.
    Regards

    As you drive on the N1 towards Cape Town, turn left at Durban road, and then immediately right again. keep on driving until you see "Teazers" Its one of my favorite venues in Cape Town, and no trip here is complete without a visit.

    Eish...not for the purists as mainly artificial lures are used

    Howzit Rivek (is that right?)

    Send me a PM when you are here and I'll be happy to hook up and do some fishing in the salt. I know the spots, but don't know how to catch the buggers yet, but hopefully will have that remedied by the new year.

    Cheers

    I have, but long ago. About 4years ago and this is where some one showed me how to fly fish. Little did I know that this would become my favourite way of fishing.I have hooked a sandshark there once, but did not land it. Broke my of like a dry twig.
